Hernán Cédola: “Untergehen”,
The Argentine painter Hernán Cédola is having his second solo exhibition in Miami, “Untergehen,” a series of large paintings in the same vein of his previous period, although making headway in his search of some of the tensions from the field of abstraction.
“The work of art is to drift, to wander,” explains Cédola, “although beauty is always encumbering things, and sometimes the painting comes about as a result of our struggle with it.”
“Untergehen”, the title of the exhibition, is a German word with several meanings.  In the first place, it means to go (gehen) down (unter). It can also be used to name the sunset, to sink, to set. However, it could also mean to be wrecked, to founder, and to go to ruin. It is a fundamental term in one of the most famous works by German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche. “Man, thus spoke Zarathustra, is a transit and an exit … he was moving toward his own sunset.”
“Untergehen is a rich word,” Cédola said, “which makes reference to the language and to the character that I have been trying to flesh out in these paintings. However, it is a word that can be used at different levels. For example, some knots in the history of abstraction can be explained from this going under, this getting off from some languages which are supposed to be effective, beautiful, proven, in order to transform the work of art into a space of struggle.”
When asked about this struggle, he elaborated: “The problem is that there is already too much beauty, too many beautiful objects in the world,” he said, “with the added difficulty that these objects always secure an ever increasing social prestige. That is why I like to think of beauty as a failure. And that changes the axis - the coordinates, allowing new possibilities to break forth, which until now had seemed to have been subverted by prettiness. This work gathers together these questions,” he explained, “questions about the field of abstraction and, also, about the sway of beauty in that field, and about the tensions it has always given rise to. We know that beauty is despotic and, yet, it reinvents itself at the same time, and much of that reinvention falls on the shoulders of the artists. I think I had all that in mind when I was painting, and I didn’t want to be naïf in this regard.”
Hernán Cédola (born in Buenos Aires in 1977) is a contemporary self-taught Argentine artist. Nowadays he lives andworks in the City of La Plata. Since 2004 he has been showing his work in solo and group exhibitions.
Solo exhibitions (selection): Untergehen, Dot Fiftyone gallery, Usa, 2013. Naturaleza Muerta, Braga Menéndez arte contemporáneo, Argentina, 2011. La posibilidad de un vacío, Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Rosario, Argentina, 2011. Un silencio aparente, KBK arte contemporáneo, México DF, 2010. Timeless, Dot Fiftyone gallery, USA, 2009. Estudios para óleo y grabado, Zavaleta Lab arte contemporáneo, Argentina, 2007. Serie, Museo de Arte Contemporáneo Latinoamericano, Argentina, 2004.
In 2010 he was invited to take part in a collective exhibition called Abstraction Revisited in the Chelsea Art Museum, New York, together with Joan Mitchele, Lee Krasner and Robert Motherwell.
This exhibition will be on view from November 21, 2013 until January 10, 2014 at Dot Fifty One Gallery.
José Vera Matos: “ Summer and Winter at the same Time" - Project Room
In his first show in the city of Miami the peruvian  artista Jose Vera Matos presents an installation consisting of a series of 8 images shot for  the magazine National Geographic, which were digitally manipulated.
In pursuit of knowledge about the world in ancient times , men started watching the stars , and then endeavored to apply to the internal constitution of the human being , what they learned from the stars. For example ,  they studied the sun which looked pretty revealing to the imaginative knowledge of those days. To the modern scientist Orthodox , the Sun is a ball of gas - which of course can not be fair for thought . When the man watched the sun externally , for him it embodied the language of soul and spirit, and the human body is an expression of the soul and spirit. Much was learned from the sun And when the man in the cosmos had read what the Sun had revealed , he could point to his own heart , and say : Now I understand the nature of the human heart , since the sun has revealed it to me ! - And similarly in the other heavenly bodies and constellations , man discovered the secrets of her organism .( … )
The former could only give expression to their awareness of the relationship between man and the universe looking up to the sun and the starry sky at the time of the Summer Solstice, when conditions were more favorable to feel its union with the cosmos . But if today we noticed an inner intensity how we come to know the universe , we have to look into the depths of the inner being of man. And the timing for this is in the middle of winter … “
José Vera Matos (Lima 1981). Studied at the School of Visual Arts Edith Sachs and at  Escuela Nacional Superior Autónoma de Bellas Artes del Perú.  He received in 2012 the Scholarship from Robert Sterling Clark Foundation of American Artists to perform a residency at Vermont Studio Center. His work has been shown in various solo and group exhibitions in countries such as Lima, Mexico City, Barcelona, Madrid, Puerto Rico, Bogota, Miami, New York, amongst others. Recently, he participated in the exhibition “Superreal, Alternative Realities in photography and video” at the Museum Quarter in New York.
He currently lives and works in Lima.
Claudia Joskowicz: “Sympathy for the Devil” - Video Room. 
Sympathy for the Devil can be understood as a reflection on space and its influence on the human social dimension. Using the iconic view of the Illimani (a prominent mountain in the Bolivian Andes) two synchronized screens narrate an anecdote from 1970s Bolivia. They each depict the daily encounter between a Polish jewish refugee who arrived in Bolivia during the Second World War and his upstairs neighbor, the former Nazi Klaus Barbie (who lived under an assumed identity) in a building in a well to-do neighborhood in the city of La Paz. Both men lived parallel lives as neighbors and as European immigrants in exile in Bolivia, mutually aware of each other’s presence in the building, meeting daily in the elevator. The cold landscape of La Paz serves as backdrop to highlight the contrast of the lives of these two men who left behind opposing destinies in Europe and shared a view in Bolivia. This simple interaction serves to highlight a recurring situation in Bolivia and Latin America at large in the postwar period when the region offered asylum to both persecuted Jews and Nazi Germans, antagonistic communities in Europe, which would coexist in relative lull in Latin America.
Sympathy for the Devil (2011) Two channel digital HD video; 8 minutes total running time; color; sound.
